Many of the vendors have recognized this and are incorporating Twitter like functionality into their collaboration platforms. Some, such as Newsgator integrate with Sharepoint, other such as Manymoon, integrate with Google Apps.

We’re really interested in using Yammer and have a few people on it already.
